Celebrating Community groups

Sponsor Refugees believes that community sponsorship of refugees should be celebrated and that inspirational groups, individuals and local authorities should be recognised for the work they put in to make community sponsorship a success.

The awards are a commemoration and acknowledgement of the efforts groups and individuals dedicate to community sponsorship. These awards are an annual celebration of the people involved in Community Sponsorships, and a recognition of their contribution to their communities. The Community Sponsorship Awards focus on the people who champion our cause and help Community Sponsorship thrive, and how their efforts are changing the lives of everyone who takes part in the initiative.

This is why we launched the annual Community Sponsorship Awards at our launch event in October 2017.
